The eight-part saga offers an invigorating look at Jesus Christ and his future disciples.

Apr 18, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

[Dallas] Jenkins' passion and belief is admirable, both in his ability to skewer a narrative that seems so structured and in his determination to have that narrative be heard.

Apr 15, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The Chosen is must-see, even if you're not into Christian or historical programming or particularly religious. It's an extraordinarily created piece and a labor of love in motion.

Apr 15, 2020 | Rating: 4.9/5 | Full Review…

The Chosen is one of the most engaging Bible-inspired productions I've seen. Surprisingly funny and relatable, we continue watching episode after episode not because we feel obligated to support it as a dutiful Christians, but because it's compelling.

Apr 14, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

I highly recommend it for anyone of faith that is looking for quality storytelling.

Apr 12, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Dallas Jenkins does a great job at putting a unique spin on a somewhat popular story, known characters and familiar 'historic' situations that many have argued to be fictional.

Apr 1, 2020 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

The Chosen struck gold with some key casting decisions and as a result, delivers a wholesome and enjoyable retelling of Jesus' story.

Mar 12, 2020 | Full Review…

It has a fresh take on the pre-ministry of Christ, which is smart and insightful to a contemporary audience.

Audience Reviews for The Chosen: Season 1

    I honestly can't say enough how much I've enjoyed this first season. I feel like I finally have a better picture of what it might have been like for the apostles to be called by Christ. I feel like I have a much better relationship with Jesus. I know that sounds cheesy, but it's true. I keep watching the episodes over and over again. I keep thinking I will get sick of it eventually but I haven't yet. I just can't wait for more seasons, even though I know how the story goes, the way they have portrayed it is so enjoyable and well-written and well-directed. An honest Seeker will find great Solace and happiness in this show.

    It is the best show ever shown about the life of Jesus. Very well done. It draws you in and looks at the actual people in the gospels.

    I loved season one. I watched it on the app then bought the DVD set so I could share it with other people. I can't wait for season two. It is amazing to see this story told from the dicsiples perspective. Simon (Peter) is my favorite.

    This is a life changing show. Absolutely loved each and every scene. Thank you to all who helped to make this happen.

    This show is amazing and well produced. Its message is deeply moving and life changing. Our family is watching it over and over. I've never seen the life of Jesus portrayed in such a natural and compelling way. I LOVE this show.

    Awsome for Christians and nonbelievers. Brought me closer to Jesus and gave life to the stories of the new testament that I read so many times. I think is also a great tool to get nonbeliever interested in Jesus and reading the bible. This series is one of a kind and a must-watch for everyone, I mean an IMDB rating of 9.7 says it all.

    Awesome! Much needed positive and meaningful programming among the rest of the garbage movies and TV that exist now. The shows really give you things to think about and truly bring Jesus and the Scriptures to life. Will definitely get many people thinking or re-thinking their priorities and lives.
